Lecture: "The Church as a Consistent Voice Against Racism"


Location: 1030 Jenkins Nanovic Halls

The Center for Civil and Human Rights welcomes The Most Reverend George Murry, Bishop of the Diocese of Youngstown (OH) and Chairman, Ad Hoc Committee Against Racism, U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Throughout Christian history, the Church has called for men and women of all races to be treated equally. Unfortunately, that voice has not been consistent. Now is the time for the Church to become a consistent voice against racism. This talk will explore both the history of the Church’s statements on racism and the possibilities that exist for the future.

All are welcome. Lunch will be served in the Forum following Bishop Murry’s talk.
